As the subject of this post suggests, this is with regard to creating a slideshow widget. I do not want to use some of the conventional slideshow tools such as slideshare.com or the Amazon slideshow widget for two reasons:
a. The rules around the Slideshare.com widget do not allow me to customize ANY aspect of the image slideshow and also has posed problems wherein the slideshow behavior is somewhat erratic.
b. The Amazon slideshow widget is what I use right now. Again, I want to modify the widget such that the images do not have links embedded in them. Once again, the rules behind the use of the Amazon widget do not allow me to remove links from the images.
What I am looking for is something that allows me to create a horizontal slideshow with a set of images by referencing the file URLs of images online. How difficult is it to implement this? Thoughts? Ideas?
